Description by OLDIES.com:
Shorty Rogers, jazzman par excellence, introduces all-star jazz musicians (including Shelly Manne, Buddy Collette, Bud Shank, Paul Horn, Bill Hood, Pete Jolly, Red Mitchell and others) into the world of exciting sound recording on this, a CD reissue of the first, and long out-of-print, jazz album in the Warner Bros. "Stereo Workshop Series." On it, Shorty and his compatriots tackle the fourth dimension in sound, adding to melody, harmony, and rhythm the element of spatial separation, as well as some split-second electronic changes induced by custom circuitry especially devised by The Stereo Workshop.

As was true of many records from the early 1960's, the emphasis on this out-of-print Lp (especially in the lengthy liner notes) is on the stereophonic sound rather than the music.Rogers (sticking to flugelhorn) leads a group that includes three reeds, trombonist Ken Shroyer, vibraphonist Emil Richards, pianist Pete Jolly, bassist Red Mitchell or Joe Mondragon on bass and drummer Shelly Manne. The music is better than the liner notes (which spend most of their time describing the sound) lets on but is not all that significant, emphasizing swing standards along with an occasional Latin novelty. ~ Scott Yanow
